Well written piece but I am more optimistic. I was living in Germany during the Gerhard Schroeder years where he was being much more vitriolic than even Trump has thus far managed and President Bush was daily pilloried for various things. The US-Euro alliance will survive, have it’s ups and downs, but for the foreseeable future neither has a better idea or alternative.
